Getting a blue screen with a stop message on a Vista OS

Stop: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005,0x84F14113,0x88D6B780,0x88D6B47C)

Then a crash dump.

This PC has a dual boot with XP home & Vista.
XP is still booting ok.

Is it 32 or 64 bit Vista? And is it up to date? Is alcohol 120%, or daemontools installed on this?? Looks like these programs can cause that stop error. Does it show the name of a file or driver as well? What did you install, before this BSOD came up?? Anything?

Thank you speedy.

It will be 32 bit.
Don't know if it was up to date, not my system.
Could have anything installed on it. I believe the owner was trying to rip something prior to this.
I can boot into XP & have a look if you think it could be an alcohol related problem.

So when does it crash?? Before it boots into Vista, or while youre in it? If ccleaner is on the hdd, run it, and if daemontools and alcohol are installed, untick / disable their entries under tools / startup. Will it boot into safe mode without crashing?

It crashes before it boots.
Have tried last known good & safe mode with same results.
Have just booted into XP & had a look at Vista's program files but can't see either daemontools or alcohol.

I see Power DVD Rip Studios, that could what was being used.

Hmm, remove the hdd if its in a desktop, then scan it with something in a working system. Make sure you jumper it properly if its IDE

05-01-2010, 06:03 PM
That was going to be my next move.
What programs would you recomend, as a sequence of scanning.

I dont know. probably a virus scanner. Avast / MSSE / NOD32

Whatever is installed on the PC youre going to install it in

05-01-2010, 06:36 PM
Try using the tools in Vista -- Can the PC start in safe mode ( vista), if it does, click start, type in Performance look for Performance and Reliability Monitor in the results, click it, look under Reliability Monitor, there it will have a red circle with a white X at the exact time of the crashes, click it and it will tell you what has caused the problem ( or should).

Ok, I'm currently running Malwarebytes over it. Found a few infected objects so far but still going. I'll run MSSE next.

Here's another question for you
It's SATA drive & I am using a powered USB converter to connect it to my system.
Would it scan quicker if I connected it directly to a SATA port on my motherboard.

Oh sorry wainui, just saw your post. Won't boot to Vista at all.
I did wonder if I could see the Vista event viewer from XP.

Probably be better if you plug it into a sata connector. Once Mbam is finished, Turn it off. Then chuck it back in the other system. See how it goes

05-01-2010, 06:47 PM
Mbam is still running & MSSE has just come up with an Alert "Virus:Win32/Alureon.F"

Hmm, looks like Win32/Alureon is a data stealing trojan (http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/Threat/Encyclopedia/Entry.aspx?Name=Win32%2fAlureon). So, IF it was working before this infected the system, I would change any passwords on any sites you've been to. Esp banks. Thats IF you've got any money left in it !

05-01-2010, 06:54 PM
heres the info on it (http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/Threat/Encyclopedia/Entry.aspx?name=Virus%3aWin32%2fAlureon.F) - it infects the atapi.sys file. thats whats causing the problems more than likely, hopefully after MSSE finishes its scan, it will boot OK.

05-01-2010, 07:27 PM
Thanks for you help.
It's all go now.
I'll have a bit of a clean up & get rid of the AVG.
